The Birmingham Bulls have announced their Protected Players list for the 2021-22 Season.
About Protected Players Lists:
Each SPHL team is permitted to protect any combination of 13 players that were on last season’s roster. A player being on this list DOES NOT guarantee that they will play for that team next season, just that the team retains the player’s rights heading into next season, preventing them from signing with another SPHL team. Those rights can be traded, and if a player plays in a different league, his rights remain with the SPHL team that protected him.
